“Awesome Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is perfect. We had a great stay in August. The rooms are very clean and well designed. The ocean front balconies are a huge plus. The pool area is great. It's nice that they have a separate kids pool. The location could not be more perfect. I would recommend this hotel to all.

Great rooms, FANTASTIC POOL, staff is very friendly and accommodating... you will be glad you stayed here! 30+ years of coming to OC, I have stayed in many places - this beats them all.

The Holiday Inn Suites at Ocean City, Maryland was an excellent hotel choice for a weekend at the beach. The room was huge and extremely well taken care of. We stayed in an oceanfront corner king suite which offered a jacuzzi in the bedroom. This was the perfect place to sit and watch movies on the flat screen TV and in room DVD player. The kitchen was well stocked with more than enough dishes. The bathroom was a nice size with an awesome shower. The living room area had another flat screen TV and DVD player. The hotel offered three pools, we stayed early in the season so only the indoor pool was open, but the hours of that were generous. Very nice hotel and a great staff! Fantastic location right on the boardwalk.

This was the first time staying at the Holiday Inn and Suites 17th Street Ocean City Maryland. I'm so glad we choose this hotel. The counter personel are professional and friendly. They always had a smile on their face and were very helpful. We received prompt service from maintenance when I couldn't open the safe in our room. The housekeeping staff are wonderful. They would greet you with a smile.Our rooms were spacious and clean. We had the deluxe suites which suited our family well. Large living room area with dining table and chairs. Full kitchen with cooking supplies, which we used every morning. The dishwasher was great. Large bathroom with a 3 head shower. The bedroom featured 2 queen beds and a jacuzzi tub. The beds were so comfortable, the pillows were labeled firm or soft, we used them all. The jacuzzi was so relaxing and enjoyed it greatly. The grandchildren used the indoor pool daily since the weather was windy and temperature was cool. We had oceanfront rooms and had wonderful views of the ocean from the balcony which also had a table and chairs. Thank you to the hotel staff which made our stay even more enjoyable. Looking forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: We had the corner suites which are larger if you wanted to take the family. We had 2 suites, but cou...

This was my second visit to this hotel and I will most likely have a third. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, view is fantastic. Did notice though that I was not greeted or acknowledged as a member and did not receive my daily newspaper (oh well, as long as my points are added). Just one downfall - the restaurant. There is nothing wrong with the food (only had breakfast - both trips) but the service is lackluster to downright bad. I had breakfast there once during both trips. Suggest you call for room service if you don't want to go out. But if you do we found a great little place about 1/2 block down the street called the Sahara Cafe.

I'm not sure why there would be any mixed reviews on this hotel. We stayed April 29th and 30th as a halfway point on a longer trip south. We were already prepared for off season weather and had no problem with it. Holiday Inn and Suites and Hilton are close if not the highest price hotels in the area (and for good reason). We could afford the prices due to being off season, and I believe they earn the increased price in season. Parking is great, check in is a piece of cake. (I found the negative reviews about 2nd floor lobby hilarious - due to hurricanes and flooding a lobby is smart to have on the 2nd floor). The café/bar is awesome for b-fast and children and the indoor pool was great. We didn't get to use the outdoor pool areas, but could only imagine how perfect it would be for the kids on one side and adults on the other. The suites are perfect for families, and 2 yr old had more fun in the huge whirlpool tub (swimming) than outside due to the cooler temperatures. Balcony facing the ocean is a must, and it was probably one of the cleaner and nicer balconies we've had anywhere. We hit a great rate at $119/night with published rate of $149/night, and around $500 in season. The hotel is HUGE and had no problems tiring out the kids staying inside from the rain. They were continuing outdoor maintenance/preparing for the season in the rain and cooler weather.

Overall, you will get what you pay for! I really don't understand any of the negative reviews. We will absolutely return and only hope for better weather.

Room Tip: Ocean view higher room obviously a must!

Decided to extend our stay and booked this hotel for a night after staying at the hilton. The counter person was very nice and took our number to call us when the room was ready. We got a call around noon saying the room was ready, we were pleasantly suprised they got it ready so quickly. The hotel overall is similar to the hilton. The stay was pleasant and we were very pleased, the ONLY complaint i have is the smell of the room was very strong im assuming due to the type of cleaners they use. A few minutes of the balcony doors open fixes this. We will probably stay here again.
